How to build a community with your free and paid subscribers all in one place
This was SO helpful. Thank you! I really appreciate you all giving writers so much support. Especially when it comes to implementing new tools that you introduce.
After reading this article I am convinced of the potential of this chat. I would like to ask if it is possible to insert private direct messages in chat, between me and my readers?
When I email out my chat threads, the readers received a general message like, "Petar Petrov just kicked off the new chat. Read it now in the Substack app or visit on web." Well, this is fine, but it would be better if they receive an actual preview of the chat thread and read what it is about. Similar to the old thread posts.
I'm trying to see if I can run a discussion group on substack behind the paywall, and was really hoping that if I enabled paid subscribers to be able to start chat threads, that those threads would be paywalled / and only paid subscribers could reply, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Any chance we could get that feature?
Wow I love this idea! I'll definitely have to make one for my writing substack. It'll be a great place for aspiring authors to discuss all things writing/publishing!
I love your cadence, rhythm & clarity. It really adds to the dimensionality of the poem.

The chat is one of the reasons I'm making the switch from Ghost to Substack. The features of community building are unparalleled. That being said, as someone new to Substack, I'm struggling with some features because the customer service doesn't respond to my questions and emails, and I've struggled to get a response on the chat threads as well. I uploaded my podcast, but it won't appear as a separate section on the navigation bar. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I'm excited to create my chat and take part in others once I'm all set up. One of the reasons I'm switching from Ghost to Substack is because of the features Substack creates to foster community. The Ghost newsletter often came down to integrating more social media. In contrast, Substack creates its own ways to interact with readers and build a community without being bombarded by ads and clickbait.
